Thread: Recording Battles

    Default Recording Battles

    Ok I'd forgotten how to do this and had to look it up so I'm making a post on how to do it.

    Find your shogun exe and create 2 shortcuts. Name one "record" and one "Playback". Now:


    RIGHTCLICK on a "Shogun: Total War" shortcut.

    Now LEFTCLICK properties ( one up from the bottom of the list)

    left-click in the "Target" box, and position the cursor at the end of the text that's in there at the moment.

    Now Add a space

    NOW add ER if you want to record OR mEP if you want to playback. NOTE: don't enter both, cos it won't work. Only one OR the other.

    Click Apply.

    The saved battle will be in your dumplog folder. It only saves the most recent battle, you will have to remove it and store it somewhere else if you want to save a battle permently. When you replay a battle it must be in the dumplog folder and entitled "replay".


    Happy viewing.

    Happy viewing.
    You can actually save the games in the dumplog folder.
    After each game,open the dumplog folder, look for the file named replay,
    click and then rename. Give the file a name for the battle.
    It is saved. Every game you want to save you need to do this.
    It's easier than creating another folder and transferring files across.
    When you want to watch the replay open dumplog folder, rename the battle..replay..remember to rename it to the battle name after watching.
    It sounds a lot to do but it is very easy once you get used to it. Only takes seconds to do.

    Must point out......when you start STW, exit the startup screen and double click the ...Record... shortcut on your desktop to start the game (otherwise it will not record).
    Don't run the game from your main shortcut. :o)

    Same with showing replays. Start game from the ...Replay (or Playback shortcut)(I have mine named ...Replay)
